Material Resiliency in Safety Harnesses

What type of material would be best suited for seat belts and why? These questions are examined as middle schoolers put different fabrics to the test after hypothesizing which material would work best for the intended purpose. Once the data has been collected, they perform a mock interview with an expert, examine their results, and come to a conclusion about which fabric works best for a seatbelt. To wrap it all up, a short quiz will assess what was learned.
